After launching Magicverse last year and adding new features to Lumin OS, Magic Leap seems to be getting closer and closer to actually launching its cross-platform AR cloud, while also introducing a new tool for the AR cloud. Developer community.
At the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Thursday, Magic Leap's Chief Product Officer, Omar Khan, announced that the Magicverse SDK 1.0 release is expected to be discontinued in the first quarter of 2020.  A slide from its presentation confirms that the SDK will be available not only for Lumin OS, but also for Unity, Unreal, iOS and Android. That way, developers could create apps that work between Magic Leap One and mobile devices.
Back In the world of currently available products and services, Magic Leap on Wednesday has the Magic Leap Toolkit released for Unity.
] Available through Github, this toolkit provides developers with reusable assets, ready-made engine tools, and other useful tools to create apps and other spatial computing experiences for Magic Leap One.
The toolkit is designed to help Unity developers solve problems while their apps are running, with nine launch tools available. Developers can troubleshoot network connectivity issues through the transfer tool or view log files through the Runtime Control tool, while the Control Input tool prescribes pressing keys and wiping touchpads in real time. Coolest from a layperson's point of view. Demonstrates how Lumin OS understands its spatial environment based on the user's orientation to the controller. For example, Lumin OS may interpret a coffee table as a chair due to its relatively low height, but a counter is identified as a tabletop.
Conversely, the Control Pointer provides developers with a set of properties that can be used to determine how the controller interacts with digital objects, including the ability to target, select, and move objects. It also indicates physical properties such as weight.
Other tools include Keep In Front, an add-on that lets virtual objects stay in the user's view The starting point in an app is Ramp Light, a rendering tool that lights in an AR experience Optimized, and Spatial Alignment, a companion transmission tool to verify visual alignment between multiple connected users.
With these tools, Magic Leap facilitates the development of apps within the existing framework of Lumin OS before Magicverse, which promises to introduce a whole new paradigm for the company's geospatial approach.
